No more waiting with baited breath - Triumph motorcycles are finally here! Triumph has announced seven (yes, you heard that right!) motorcycles for India and that includes the Bonneville, Tiger 800XC, Street Triple, Speed Triple, Daytona 675, Storm and the Rocket III Roadster. That makes it one sports bike, two cruisers and four naked street-muscle motorcycles - alright, watch that drool puddle!
Prices for four motorcycles have been announced so far. The Bonneville and Street Triple will retail at Rs 5.5 Lakh - seriously good pricing, especially considering they're on par with the entry-level Harleys and cheaper than the Kawasaki Ninja 650R while holding a displacement advantage. Next up is the Daytona 675, a theoretical rival to the Ninja (but we know it's much, much crazier), which is priced at Rs 7 Lakh - again, delicious pricing! Last in queue is the monstrous Rocket III which is priced at Rs 22 Lakh (all prices ex-showroom).
Triumph Motorcycles will operate via three to four dealerships in its first year of operations, a number that will go up to 12 in the next three years. Expect the dealerships to be highly dyed-in-the-wool affairs, with lots of rider/motorcycle accessories up for grabs. Exciting times, no? Now to rehearse that clipped accent!
